Hello, hopefully i have poster this in the right section and sorry for it being quite a long post.
I have been having problems with slow download speeds over wifi when downloading files on my PS4. I am with sky fibre and have a download speed of 36-38mbps which i can get on any device in my house wirelessly other than my ps4 which i need it most for (only getting 8-10mbps wifi but i can get full speed through ethernet but the router and ps4 are in different rooms) so i borrowed a set of TP link av500 mini powerline adapters from a friend so i could connect my ps4 through ethernet in a different room.
It all works fine and the ps4 is downloading 3gb files in a few minutes over ethernet where as before over wifi it would take around 10 hours but i am having two problems with it.
1. when the ps4/ps3/pc is plugged into the adapter in a different room via ethernet wifi signal on every other device drops to around 2-3 mbps while the plugged in device stays at full speed. is this normal? to get the wfi speed to go back up to normal i need to unplug the cable from what ever device it is attached to.
2. like i said while the ps4 is plugged into the adapter in a different room the speed is fine and things download in minutes but if i am playing a shooter game online on the ps4 when its plugged in there seems to be some kind of lag and my bullets dont hit its target ( there is no visible lag or stutter in the game but its just like no bullets are hitting the target) even though the download and upload are fine and so is my signal to the game. where as this doesnt happen on the slower wifi speed.
Does anyone have experience with using one of these adapters and could possibly help me?
